John Orsborn has been fascinated with Asian culture since childhood. At the age of 10, he became interested in the martial arts. At 16, he became interested in Asian philosophy, a love that culminated in his earning a Bachelor degree with an emphasis on Chinese philosophy from Wright State University. He has practiced tai chi, qigong, and meditation for over 40 years and was a qigong instructor for the Cancer Support Community and the Center for Building Hope for over 9 years. He also has over 28 years experience in operations management.
In 2003, John was seriously injured in a traffic accident. During an arduous rehabilitation, including learning to walk again, he utilized acupuncture and qigong as major components of his therapy. Believing he survived the accident for a reason, he returned to school earning a Master of Oriental Medicine degree and a Bachelor degree in Professional Health Science from East West College of Natural Medicine, and has dedicated his life to helping others.
Dr. O, as the students call him, has taught at East West College since 2014 and he is passionate about passing on the knowledge he has gained from over twelve years in private practice at his clinic, Tao of Wellbeing Acupuncture Clinic LLC, plus his personal research into Classical acupuncture and Chinese philosophy. He has been publishded in The Empty Vessel, a journal of Daoist philosophy and practice, and is a National Board Certified Acupuncture Physician and a Diplomate of Acupuncture (NCCAOM) licensed in the state of Florida.
